More than 1300 #JournalistsSpeakUpForAssange and demand that #Assange be released immediately from #prison, that the #UK government and judiciary refuse to permit a politically-motivated #extradition, and that the #US government drop the charges of #espionage.

This is why we are speaking up in defence of #JulianAssange, now at this dangerous time.
